Edible Wild Plants

12 years ago

Anyone here an edible wildscape hobbiest and/or familiar with home recipes and remedies?

I've got some wild garlic that I planted for their pretty, albeit brief, flowers. But I haven't yet eaten them.

Also have lots of mesquite beans which I read can be ground into flour (sharp in flavor). I haven't ground my own yet, but did purchase mesquite flour that someone else produced.

I also have a lot of horehound that I'm told the German settlers brought with them to use medicinally with honey, candy and for tea.

I've eaten cactus fruits but haven't yet made the jelly.

And this one really surprised me. Did you know you can eat milkweed pods?

Here is a link that might be useful: How to collect/cook milkweed pods
